Position Summaries:

Students are given the opportunity to work in different areas and aspects of the operation of the University Center. We look at work at the Usdan University Center not as a typical “work study” job but an additional learning experience outside of the classroom. It is important to us that we stress to our students that if they are not willing to be part of a dynamic learning environment where they will be asked to actively think, then this is not the right place for them. Each job provides the student with the ability to grow personally and laterally in their position based on their commitment and performance. Students will develop several different skills sets that can easily be applied or adapted to any chosen profession upon graduation.
